    The subtitle of this book, “A Guide to Non-Criminal Autopsies for the General Pathologist,” is sufficient justification for its publication. In Britain, Canada, and, I suspect, the United States, the majority of “coroner's autopsies” are performed by general pathologists operating out of local hospitals. Many of these pathologists have no formal training in forensic pathology and gain experience and hopefully expertise on a case-by-case basis. The difference between a hospital and medicolegal autopsy is essentially one of the approach. The approach to forensic science cases is well-defined in this book.
